New Lancia Stratos is real and based on the Ferrari F430


Before our website went on vacation for a bit, spy shots of a rumored Lancia Stratos prototype were making the rounds on the web and caused a lot of speculation.

Now, the project has been officially detailed and even has its own website called, what else, the New Lancia Stratos.

As was rumored, the project is currently a one-off model, built by Pininfarina and based on the Ferrari F430. As you can imagine, the new Stratos uses a different body, made completely out of carbon fiber. This means it will be extremely lightweight and have a near 50:50 weight distribution.


The car is being made for German enthusiast Michael Stoschek, who is really into racing old rally models.

No other details were revealed, but if more people will be interested in the project, there is the possibility of it being made into a limited series instead of the current one-off.
